Hope you're all having a great day! Every day should be a day to celebrate!
My layout for today.
I used DCWV paper along with white cardstock from ColorBok.
Most of my creations use DCWV. I really love that paper brand.... and there are sooooo many to choose from! It's so difficult for me to only pick out a few, when I want every one of them!
Occasionally I'll try another brand of paper, but I always come back to DCWV.
This is a pretty simple layout, but I really love how these flowers look! I recycled old magazines and traced flowers, many of them, which I then hand cut. A brad was attached in the center, holding several layers together, and then the scrunching began. I always scrunch the layer in the middle right up around the brad (because I don't always want the brad to show). And it does look more like the center of a "real" flower. Then I just keep scrunching each layer until I get to the bottom layer, which isn't scrunched as much. Once I got the flower the way I liked it, I added Diamond Stickles to the edges of each flower.
I was trying to get a close up of the flowers so you could see the Stickles. I think the second photo captures it best.
I hand cut the leaves, sanded the edges and folded them together to give them some dimension. Twine was added under the flower to add something fun.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for checking out my Blog!
